in benghazi at the u.s. consulate there. we've been in touch with the state department, again, they are not coming forthwith a confirmation yet. they do tell us there is one american not identified who has been killed after an attack by islamists. they were protesting an independent film made in the united states said to be critical of the muslim prophet, mohammed, and gotten some play on the super net in the arab world. that is rousing up feelings. according to reports, again, unconfirmed reports, the u.s. ambassador was killed when he and others were trying to get other staffers out of the consulate in benghazi, libya, which was under attack, which have, in fact, burning down. a rocket propelled grenade flying around the car that they were in as they were trying to get in in that very dramatic scene. folks, this followed yet another assault on the u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt yesterday. again, protesters there very angry about this very same film. they scaled the walls. they tore down and burned the u.s. flag there. they displayed a black flag with arabic writing. no injurie
movie mass cure>> brian: the hit in benghazi on 9/11, we are talking about benghazi, libya. 16 days ago, was that a pon tanous attack like ambassador rice talked about and that was backed up by the press secretary over and over again. gradually things are coming out. we were misled but they knew exactly what happened within 24 hours, because we have assets on the ground in libya. >> gretchen: when the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice went on the talk shows it was a chest - orchesterated line. within 24 hours they knew it was a terrorist attack and how did they know that? they have to classify it as a terrorist attack to get the right people in action to go in investigate. that had happened. >> brian: there is a couple of problems with it 24 hours after the attacks we knew, there was intelligence knew. whether ambassador rice or president obama knew. i would have to assume they did know. they went everywhere saying we had no idea and blamed the movie. hilary clinton blamed the movie three times in the after math and jay carny blay amed the movie and president obama in the
administration, as lawmakers have now sent a letter to james clapper demanding answers on benghazi attack. of considers, yesterday we were talking about james clapper. friday, his office coming out and basically staking responsibility for the intelligence failures. well, now, senator joe lieberman and others coming forward with this letter. >> alisyn: and also, who is going to take responsible for the tactffactactfufact-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else
highlights later. most people are saying it was a week since the benghazi attacks and amazing how the administration has been off message despite the evidence on the ground that it was a preplanned organized terrorist attack and dare i say al-qaida . now the administration seems to have seen the light and starting to realize that the indication are that this was indeed a terrorist attack. >> gretchen: it is interesting. even though it appears they came full circle. the spokesperson for the president had a different than the president within a couple of hours. let's see what jay carny said aboard air force one. it is a reporter gaggle and hard it here. here is the quote. i think it is self evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. our embassy was attacked and the result of four deaths of american officials. again, that is self evident. that is not what jay carny said a few days ago and susan rice ambassador to the united nations said on the talk shows on sunday. what changed the opinion in the public where they felt compelled to change the story is when matt olsen t
of two weeks now. that is what happened in benghazi? why was the message coming out of the administration so muddled at best and misleading at worse? when did they know that it was a terrorist attack? why won't the president actually use the term terrorist attack? well, yesterday there was a major break through and one agency came out and took responsibility. >> in fact, it was james clapper's office, the director of national intelligent basically trying to take the onus off the white house by saying hey it was the intelligence community's fault and said, this quote: in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to the executive branch officials and members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. through the our investigation we continued to emphasize that our information was preliminary and evolving. >> we were waiting for someone like james clapper or tom donilin to weigh
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. american violence is beginning to show signs of slowing, but tensions remain high. the state department is evacuating all family members and non-u.s. government personnel from tunisia and the sudan. we have a reporter on the ground in tunisia. >> reporter: shannon, no wonder the state department is concerned. we are back from the area around the u.s. embassy compound here in tunis. we scpaw heard amazing things. today, the compound is secure, tukneesian military very much present. but we are told they were nowhere to be found during key moments on friday, as protesters scaled the wall, mashed up the place before they were driven out. more shocking, is what we saw next door at the american school, that's a k-12, where over 600 kids of foreign parent, including 100 american children. take a look. at noon on friday, the playground at this tukneesian school would have been filled with young kids, some of them american. then the administrators got word that a violent protest was happening across the street at the u.s. embassy and the protesters could be comi
.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. and sky news, our cousins across the pond in britain, are reporting tonight that the libyan interior ministry is saying that an american has been killed in the clashes there. >> shep: it is astounding to hear it from the analyst how either one person or one tiny group among 300 million people in this country can cause this sort of a problem. we know it's not the first time we've seen this sort of protest. far from it. >> we remember, of course, the protests that happened after that christian church leader in florida, terry jones, proposed burning the koran back in 2010. then, of course, there were the protests across the middle east in 2005 after a danish magazine published caricatures of the prophet, mohammed. the concern now with this particular incident in egypt is this is the new egypt, the new egyptian president is a member of the muslim brother shed and there will be questions about security outside the u.s. embassy. u.s. marines are responsible for security up to the perimeter wall. egyptian security forces should have been there. one imagine would cos
in benghazi that was attacked a couple of months. and we knew there was a heightened level of security. >> gretchen: according to senior diplomat sources the u.s. state department had information 48 hoirs before the mobs charged that american missions may be targeted but no warnings were begin for the diplomats to go on high alert and lock down. aside from that congressman, now the safe house in benghazi is known obviously and there is reports that sensitive documents may be missing and libyans who were working with the americans to help them are outed. >> that poses's new set of problems and a breach much our embassy and consolate is serious. there is information that should be classified and state secrets because of the work we do as a diplomatic mission overseas. any information that gets out is sensitive and a loss. there are procedures in embassies and consulate when the wall is breachedcertain things are supposed to be done. there is a thorough review. did we lose information or is it clear yet today that we have lost something that jeopardized the life of libyans. >> the libyan
on diplomatic and western targets in benghazi leading up to the murder of chris stevens. molly henneberg live at the white house with more. the state department is warning americans now about travel in the wake of all of this unrest. what can you tell us about the alert? >> hi. leeland mentioned it. this is breaking in the past hour. the state department warning americans about travel to a couple of places telling americans to get out of a couple of hot spots because of demonstrations in and around u.s. embassies. let's go first to tunisia. the state department saying do not go there. warning against all travel to tunisia at this time. this after ordering all nonemergency embassy staff out of the country yesterday. the state department says americans should get out on a commercial flight and leave the country. yesterday protesters scaled the walls of the embassy compound, damaged building, cars, set fire to a gym and an american school. thankfully all personnel are safe and accounted for. let's go to sudan. ed state department ordered all nonemergency personnel and all family members of staff
, inconsistent some of the heavy criticism coming down on the white house today over handling of the benghazi consulate attack investigation. we'll have a live report. >> gregg: and first monday in october is tomorrow and the u.s. supreme court is set to deal with red hot controversial cases on the docket. we'll get you details. >> heather: and some amazing american warriors have just crossed the finish line after marathon bike ride for the families of fallen service members. we have covered this from the very beginning. we'll take you live to ground zero. >> gregg: we begin with the countdown to a possibly pivotal al moment to the white house. in three days, romney and president obama will be squaring off in their first debate. today both candidates stepping off the campaign trail to try to get ready. a big shift in the polls may hinge in the out come. latest real clear politics average, recent national polls it shows president obama leading by four percentage points. today vice presidential nominee paul ryan saying the g.o.p. ticket will come from behind to win. no surprises, senior advisor
to join in this quote, blessed mission. in benghazi, hundreds protesting against the militia blamed for the a tack on the embassy. and to rid them of the those in eastern libya and the collapse of the regime. and a source telling the evidence points to a joint evident by al sharia not tied with al-qaeda, but sympathetic tried to fail establishing a state in eastern libya. and, the detainee is linked to the group in libya considered the most extremely. given the consulate attack is now branded tyrannyism, why the obama administration seems to be leaning to criminal prosecution. >> how could an attack go that long and what kind of response do we have in place for an attack that of could have went from six to ten to 12 hours and the law enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you
attack in benghazi, on the diplomatic compound there. the white house has come out to affirm that this is a terrorist attack, correct? >> yeah. it absolutely is a terrorist attack. we know the organization, organizations involved. there was no doubt about the fact that the attack on the consulate was planned and organized in advance. it had all the earmarks of a preplanned assault. weapons like mortars used in conjunction with small arms, automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades, launched in conjunction with one another, looked exactly like a preplanned attack. >> here's where we need to separate, though -- we talk about this movie that was made in america, you know, defaming the prophet mohammed. there were spontaneous reactions to that. the libyan situation with the death of the four americans is totally separate although it was compounded because of those things happening at the same time. >> i think the assault on the consulate and what took place in libya were the least of all the riots and conflagration that took place around the muslim world, the least associate
.s. consulate in benghazi that claimed the lives of four americans including the ambassador to libya, chris stevens. interim president is tuesday's raid was pre-meade at a time act of violence. now that is claim that the u.s. ambassador to the united nations disputes. take a listen. >> best information and best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, pre-mid at a time attack. that what happened initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons which are quite common in post revolutionary libya. that then spun out of control. >> gregg: some critics of the administration taking issue with that claim you just heard and questioning why so many of those protestors were in fact heavily armed. >> i'm not sure how much pre-planning went on, but it was clearly an act of terror. people don't bring rocket propelled grenades to demonstrations because they want to demonstrate. it was ver
the search for whoever attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. four americans were killed as you know in tuesday's attack including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. investigators say if the violence was carried out by a specific group or if it was planned they can't say yet, that's why they are investigating. according to reports out oof libya, four people have already been arrested for these attacks. meanwhile, it was a heart breaking tribute for those four americans who lost their lives in the libyan attacks. >> we welcome home for the final time ambassador chris stevens. mr. sean smith, mr. glen doherty and mr. tyrone woods. >> president obama took part in the transfer of remains ceremony at andrews air force base yesterday along with vice president biden and secretary of state hillary clinton. he spoke of the ultimate sacrifice made for our country. >> they had a mission. and they believed in it. they knew the danger and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal. they lived it. >> the president also vowed to bring those responsible to justice. and
director of national intelligence to explain why the fbi has want been able to make it in to benghazi safely. >> reporter: the fbi is worried about security in benghazi, conducting their investigation and interviews in tripoli, 400 mile away from the scene of the attack. senator bob corker of the senate foreign relations committee wants to know why. he fired off a letter to james clapper, demanding answer, saying, in part, just ab days ago, the administration apparently judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded and it was safe for our embassador -- ambationz dorto come through the city with a small security de tail. what has changed in libya in such a short time that even fbi agents, our most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? the consulate didn't have the standard marine guard. there are calls for the resignation of u.n. bambass dorsusan rice who, said that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising against an anti-muslim video. >> five days went by. we have reports that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack, yet, the
that it failed to secure the u.s. consulate in benghazi. the u.s. ambassador to the u.s. and three other americans were killed last week. senior state department officials telling cnn there were a lot of concerns about a rise in islamic extremism in benghazi. a recommendation to close it never got passed up the chain of command. the obama administration saying the act was an act of terrorism. secretary of state, hillary clinton, assigning a panel to investigate how it happened. >> there are obviously very real challenges in these new democracies, these fragile societies. as i said last week, the vast majority of the people in these countries did not throw off the tyranny of a dictator to trade it for the tyranny of a mob. >> sources told cnn ambassador stevens mentioned being on a hit list weeks before he died. secretary clinton doesn't believe there's a basis for the reports. >>> president obama sent in 30,000 additional troops to neutralize a taliban resurgent. the last of the troops have now shipped out. 68,000 u.s. personnel are still stationed. >>> election day less than 11 weeks aw
of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. on the 18th, attacked and burned the flag and on the 6, even the red cross building was struck. and building toward crescendo which led to the death of the ambassador. and this attack that ended in the death of four americans were repelled by 15 minutes none of who apparently killed. so an armed force comes to the consulate and none of the guards were killed, either means they're in ka hoots or they fled. >> alisyn: why weren't we having warning signs? it was woefully inaccurate and far below the levels you usually see at the embassies. there weren't marines, apparently four video cameras and those were supposed to be working
of u.n. ambassador susan rice because of her handling of the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi. u.s. intelligence is saying there is evidence that the attack was initially planned. initially, the administration had maintained they believed the attacks in libya were spontaneous reaction to the offensive video that rocked the middle east and beyond. could the direct sort of politicizing of the benghazi attack snowball into a full-blown october surprise for the president? what do you think? does the changing discourse about what happened in benghazi ultimately cause harm to the president? >> the thing about an october surprise is it usually has to reinforce some fundamental weakness or arguments from taking place with the president. if you think about the bin laden tape at the end of the 2004 campaign with bush and kerry, bush had been running on this fear and strength and all these issues getting the country animated on this. by the time the surprise happened, it reinforced what the people already believed. the thing that the president and this is why the bin laden assassination sor
to be cautioused on what the president believes about benghazi. this is a president who said in the new york times, that the muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds he has heard at sunset. i guess you have your own opinion of what it sounds like. but it makes one wonder what the president believes about the mushim world. you talk about practicing religion, i wonder if ambassador stevens gets to survive because of a youtube video. it is all a red herring and this doesn't happen on 9/11. and it reminds me, steve and reminds me the president and administration and military trying to characterize the fort hood massacre not far from where i am here in dallas as workplace violence. that is minimizing extremism and secretary of state was a small band of people. if that is a small band, i don't want that on my doorstep. >> steve: no. michael goodwin said whose side are you on? he meets with the muslim brotherhood and yet when netanyahu is in town he doesn't meet with him. >> it was a big story that was lost in the aftermath of the killings at the embassy. when the president said i don't have
: got quick head liance. state department confirming that the state department in benghazi in libya had a lower security standard when it was attacked. it was considered a temporary facility that allowed fewer guards and security rules and we know what happened there. forget snakes on a plane, how about a crock. one broke out of the cage and it was roaming the cargo hold. it was captured before anybody got hurt. oh, man. mr. kilmeade to you. >> brian: he turned the team success employ. ray nay grown. he credited the former owner of the new york yankee with flat out saving his life. he caught him vandalizing the side of the stadiumm and took him in . ray wrote about the special relationship. yankee miracles and life with the bronx bombers. congratulations on the book. >> thank you so much. i made it because i am on "fox and friends". >> brian: and special guys behind you as well. this is a story of a successful man reachhing back and helping a youngg kid out . back drop reggie jackson and derek jeter. what did george do? >> 1973 culture was graffiti and the bronx was burning in i was in
that this is not first and foremost a political story, this is likely a story that happened in benghazi. certainly it isn't great for them, on the other hand, president obama does have a strong record on terrorism, one that the public has appreciated and has shown up in the polls for quite some time. i think it's hard to argue that a foreign policy event coming this late in the campaign is going to trump the white house. >> we want to go to some early voting nowing going with you and the dnc, kicked off their early voting bus tour in iowa. ohio residents, they can start early voting day after tomorrow in ohio. it seems like the democrats have an early ground game this morning. >> it seems that republicans on election day, it could be as much as 40% of the electorate that weighs in before actually election day. it's one of the interesting parts of this campaign is figuring out if it's going to change the message, if it's going to change the message of the campaign. it's going to be more states and more people than it has been, in both absen tent and voting than it has been -- >> i do want to take a look a
used the world stage to declare. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> reporter: his most expansive comments on what he called the crisis in the middle east. he invoked the memory of one fallen american. >> we must reaffirm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens and not by his killers. today we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our united nations. >> reporter: to the world he offered a lesson in u.s. values. first, denouncing the insighting video. >> a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban bl
there in benghazi. >> steve: then you've got the interim libyan president going on tv saying it was preplanned. these people from out of town, i think it's al-qaeda. then people from the administration came out and said, i believe it was yesterday, said yeah, he's wrong because he doesn't have the same sources of intelligence that we do. i don't get that. he's there! >> i would trust the man on the ground, absolutely. you have to trust the guy on the ground. steve, this is very important for the obama administration because first and foremost, they misread the tea leaves. they misread this whole arab spring. they did not understand you have to fill a void of leadership in those countries. exact same thing when the shah of iran was deposed and you got the ayatollahs ayatollahs and hd hamas. so they can not all of a sudden have their failed policies, foreign policies really be seen as the reason why this has occurred. >> steve: i want to ask but something that mitt romney was caught on tape saying down there in boca a couple of months ago that. is essentially that 47% of the country not going to
happened in benghazi. we didn't know how many were dead. but it seems like america agrees with me because the polling came out and niece a dead heat in -- he's in a dead heat in the gallup poll. >> i think you're right. that's the other side of the equation that when money drains, power drains. when you're broke, you lose control of your destiny. and the guys lighten up and running up the al-qaeda flag on burning u.s. embassy compound understand they have nothing to fear. this guy, mitt romney from the coverage in american newspapers, you would think he was already president, that he's somehow responsible for this and responsible for that. no, the guy is responsible is the fellow sitting in the white house. he's the president. american embassies are ablaze. nearly 50 million people on food stamps. this is the obama track record. that's what he hopes to be reelected on. >> brian: i think the american people saw it was out of proportion. i'm curious to see what they think this tape coming out. congratulations on your book. i'll talk to you on the radio. you can take your jacket and tie off
is stand back. for example, after the attack on the benghazi consulate that the right thing to do is you say nothing because when an american ambassador is killed, that probably indicates that some serious mistake happened. that's a good moment to say nothing and to wait for facts to emerge. this president has a record that is difficult to defend in a lot of respects. job creation, bad, economic growth, too slow. and his foreign policy initiative looks like it is going up in flames. that's the place where mitt romney should go. and of course president obama and his team wake up every morning and say how can we make today be about anything other than that? unfortunately so far they're doing pretty well. >> you know, i think this president has a tremendous record to go out there and tell the american people. stabilizing the economy, 30 months of consecutive job growth, bin laden dead, gadhafi gone, al qaeda weakened. look, we shouldn't run this election on the republican terms. nor should president obama have to respond every time mitt romney makes a mistake and try to prop him up. mitt ro
